It will also have a display at ShowStoppers @ CES 2013 on January 8 in the Lafite Ballroom of the Wynn Hotel from 6-10 p.m. Auld will be demonstrating Brother sewing machines and signing autographs.
“This is an important CES for Brother because we will be showcasing our newest technologically-advanced sewing and embroidery machine with industry-first features,” says Dean F. Shulman, Senior Vice President of Brother International Corporation and head of the company’s Home Appliance and Industrial Products Divisions. “This includes the unveiling of our new DreamWeaver® XE quilting, sewing and embroidery machine in its first national exposure on a world stage, along with demonstrations of our enhanced Entrepreneur® Pro PR1000e and the award-winning Quattro® 2. We are pleased to have Anthony Ryan join our team at the show since he knows first hand how easy-to-use and tech-friendly our Brother sewing machines are.”
Auld is quite familiar with Brother sewing machines, having used the Brother sewing machines during his tenure on both Project Runway and Project Runway All Stars. “Brother sewing machines are some of the best machines I have ever put my hands on,” he says. “From their incredible industrial machines I used on the show to create my winning fashions to the home-based machines I’ve recently acquired for working on projects at home, they are truly feature-rich and durable and really tower over the competition.”
Anthony Ryan Auld is a 28-year-old fashion designer from Baton Rouge, Louisiana who most recently appeared as a designer contestant on the second season of Project Runway All Stars, which premiered October 25, 2012 on Lifetime.
